Jojawar Train Safari

Jojawar train safari

The train route between the cities of Jodhpur and Udaipur goes up the scenic Kambli Ghat Pass. One of our favorite excursions is this daily train service from the station at the start of the hill section to the highest station in the Aravallis – the Kambli Ghat station, or the other way round. The engine laboriously and slowly pulls the train through the most beautiful forests and hills that you get to see in the state, this one hour ride is really unique as you even get to interact with the locals who’ll readily share their seats with you and try their best to make conversation with you while trying to suppress the surprise and excitement of sitting next to a foreigner from faraway lands!

Rajasthan's Timeless Water Wheels

Rajasthan offbeat destination

Water in arid Rajasthan is priceless. Wells come in various sizes and depth, from the deep ancient step-wells to narrow wells. Bringing water to surface, then distributing it using variety of canals and pipes may not be feasible in all locations, and electricity is not often present to run water pumps in distant fields. But the task of needing to bring water up, to higher ground, from one level to another, from one field to another and let the water irrigate the crop must be accomplished. And for that in Rajasthan they have found a simple but effective solution. All throughout the state one can see down-to-earth water wheels powered by oxen yoked in pairs, treading in circles, turning a crossbar geared to the water wheel rigged with clay pots or tin buckets to scoop water up and distribute it to where it's needed.

A lesser-known Kuchaman Fort

offbeat places in rajasthan

Not many are aware of this splendid fort, which once served as the resident to the renowned poet-saint Meera Bai; her stories of love and devotion for Hindu deity Krishna are extremely popular in the country. Situated in the city of Kuchaman in Nagaur district, at an elevation of 1100 ft on a cliff, this fort is legendary.

Parts of acclaimed movie, Jodha Akhbar, starring Hritik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai, were filmed inside the fort. It is still survived by Rajkumari Priti Singh Kuchaman, who is supposed to the last descendant of Meera Bai. If you visit the fort, you’ll find a rich collection of gold, glass and semi-precious stones here. There are several miniature paintings as well, depicting the stories of Meera Bai.
